The second season of “Supergirl” is coming on Monday, October 10, so for those of you who are watching / re-watching season 1 Mondays on The CW, you have something to build towards. The show accomplished a lot then, but we’re moving to a new network in The CW and with that of course come opportunities to shake things up and raise the game.
Will we see that happen? We hope so; for the sake of this article (the latest in our What Should Happen premiere series), we’re putting the focus mostly on some of the various things that the show can build on to be bigger and better right out of the gate with its first episode.
Where we left off – Kara managed to defeat the likes of Non and Indigo with the help of J’onn J’onzz and really everyone around her, and had a few moments of peace courtesy of her friends, family and new boyfriend James Olsen. Everything of course started to feel peaceful … and then a pod crashed to the earth.
What should happen – We know already that Chris Wood of “Containment” and “The Vampire Diaries” is tied to whatever is in that pod, whether it be the new villain or someone else entirely. Exploring that in some form should be exciting, even if you don’t get all of the answers right away.
Also, the show should really embrace its CW roots with a fun, fast-paced premiere that offers you a reintroduction to some characters and an introduction to some new ones, including Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent. Given that Superman is only slated to appear for now in the first couple of episodes of the season, we hope that the show really dives into the Superman / Supergirl relationship, their history, and how they work together but also find conflict in the ways in which they are heroic.
As for Kara and James, just take it slow and don’t make it overly dramatic. That is something that the DC – CW universe has struggled with in general any time that characters are paired up.
